The landscape of the Mecklenburg Lake District is complemented by meadows, forests, villages, and small islands in the countless waters. At Plauer See, you can visit brown bears, and on Mirow Castle Island, you'll find the Three Queens' Palace.

The region around Waren and Lake Müritz is one of the most heavily visited tourist areas in the Mecklenburg Lake District. There are numerous cafés, restaurants and shops to linger in between the Old Town and harbour.

The first part of the tour takes you through Müritz National Park. Cycle through stretches of forest, along marshes and meadows, on your way to Neustrelitz. Neustrelitz was once the home of the Dukes of Mecklenburg-Strelitz.

You may want to take some time to explore the town before continuing on to today’s destination. The market square and castle gardens are definitely worth seeing. Cycle along the many small lakes on your way to the south of Wesenberg near the Havel-Müritz Canal.

Cycle along the edge of Müritz National Park over rolling hills on your way back to Lake Müritz. Röbel lies south of the lake. On your way there, you will encounter several prehistoric giant burial mounds. Röbel is an old craftsman and farming town.

Today you will cycle to Lake Plau. Stone graves and burial mounds dot the landscape. It would be well worth your time to visit the village church with its famous wooden carved altar. Brown bears live here in large forest enclosures. Cycle west of Lake Plau to the town of Plau, an old trade city.

Cycle west of the lake to Karow. In 1963, several buildings were transformed into an agricultural museum in Alt Schwerin. There, you can look into the past and see what village life used to be like in Mecklenburg. Continue along the Schwinzer Heath to Malchow. Further the tour takes you through vast landscape south of the “Upper Lakes” and back to Lake Müritz. Cycle through vacation country called ‘Land Fleesensee’. In the tranquil harbour town of Sietow you will reach the circular route around Lake Müritz. Take the route to the castle, ‘Waren Schloss Klink’.
